Forum: etree Subject: "File metadata XML invalid. Waiting for user to correct."

I uploaded a show today (http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=20021) and hit a snag while I was describing the files; I accidentally hit "Enter" and the description pop-up went to the "Close" state. I used my browser's "back" feature, and did the "Describe Your Files" again, which I guess is a bad thing, because the upload is now stuck in the "File metadata XML invalid. Waiting for user to correct", but I don't how (or if) I can correct the problem. Can anybody help?

Thanks,
Brad

Try Describing the Files again - it will overwrite whatever it has with the new one.

Then, go into the Contribution Engine and select "Confirm Resolved" next to your item.

Thanks for the help. I re-described the files, but I don't see where to click on the "Confirm Resolved". Do you mean here

http://www.archive.org/services/contrib-queue.php

? That's the only place I see called "Contribution Engine".

Thanks,
Brad

Try here: http://www.archive.org/contribute.php

I'm not sure, I just got an email from another user with the same issue and they didn't have that link next to their show. Let me know if you do - it should be on the right side of the page next to your item.

No, I don't see it. The right-most thing on the line for that show is the "Options" column, with an "expand" link underneath it. If it matters, I'm using Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.

Thanks,
Brad

Ok, I suspected as much. I clicked it for you, then the derivatives were created and the show is now copying to a download server for the community.

Thanks for the upload, Brad!
